WHAT IS CO-SLEEPING?
Making sure your baby sleeps through the night is very important, but it can be
easier said than done! Some parents will opt for a cot, while others will choose
a Moses basket. However, some parents choose to "co-sleep," which is when they
share their bed with their baby.
Being next to your child while you sleep is known as co-sleeping, either in the
same bed or just the same room. The most common ways some families choose to
* Bed sharing - Sleeping in the same bed as the child/infant.
* Side crib arrangement - Next to the parent, a cot is attached to the side of
the parents' bed. The baby's crib is left with three sides intact, but the
side next to the parent's bed is lowered or taken out to make it easier for
the parent and baby to interact.
